Disneyland Power Restored After Outage

UPDATED: Power has been repaired and restored to Disneyland and all attractions are operating after the park suffered a power outage on Wednesday afternoon, Variety has confirmed.

At least a dozen rides and attractions were shut down shortly after 11 a.m., in Toontown and Fantasyland at the Anaheim, Calif., park, Disneyland spokesperson Elva Rubalcava said. Crews worked to restore the outage, which stemmed from an issue with a Disneyland transformer.

A majority of the rides were back up by noon, however, a handful of attractions in Fantasyland were down until 4 p.m. Guests who were on rides when the power went out were escorted off by employees, though they were not asked to leave the area, according to patrons who shared their experience on social media.

According to Rubalcava, refunds are being handled on an individual basis.

A spokesperson didn’t know whether crowd size caused the issue. As of Wednesday afternoon, Disneyland Parks is currently only accepting guests for re-entry.

Earlier on Wednesday, the official Disneyland account tweeted that the park was busy. They later added, “Disney California Adventure Park remains available for your enjoyment. Updates to follow.”

With the holiday season being an especially hectic time for theme parks, Disney coincidentally tweeted earlier today, asking, “Why not relax and join us for a vacation to a galaxy far, far away. What’s the worst that could happen?” One guest replied, “Hmmm I don’t know maybe a major power outage and being stuck on a hot monorail car for an hour??? Oh wait.” Another posted a photo of the extremely packed park, while others complained about the lack of information being circulated from park officials.
